An update from the CMHC issued on October 28, 2016:
On October 27, 2016, CMHC met with representatives from the Province, the District of North Vancouver and the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA). The purpose of the meeting was to discuss current recreational usages of a 640-acre federal/provincial land assembly known as the Blair Rifle Range, located in the District of North Vancouver.
The meetings were an important first step in establishing an open dialogue with interested parties, and underscoring CMHC’s commitment to considering all points of view.
As a result of the meetings, and information brought forward by interested parties, CMHC and the Province are prepared, as co-owners, to permit reasonable and responsible recreational use of the property. Users are reminded that persons entering this land do so entirely at their own risk, and that the owners are not responsible for any damage or loss to property, or personal injury.
Going forward, CMHC will work closely with the Province to consider the management of appropriate recreational usages of the property.
